    Link: Why Men And Women Can`t Be Friends, Part 2 - Is it OK for committed couples to have friends of the opposite sex? The game`s the same, only the players have changed.

    Easiest question in the world.
    The answer is "It`s okay when she does it but not when he does."
    Yeah, unfair. But I`ve seen it in all my straight friends relationships.

    Me? I think it`s not appropriate.
    Why? Because men are dogs.

    Men and women can be friends, but as the great Ronald Reagan once said, "Trust But Verify".

    Bullsheit! I`ve got lots of platonic female friends, some hot, some not so much. Would I jump the hot ones` bones given the chance? You bet your sweet bippy...but, would I ever allow it if they or I were in a relationship? Nope.
    Got drunk and stoned with a hot female friend...just the two of us all alone. Not a single thing happened other than watching stupid YouTube videos.

    It`s honestly never bothered me. I always looked at it in the way that he can have a lot of friends who are girls but he picked only me as his girlfriend, so why should I have anything to worry about?

    Or maybe I`ve just been way too trusting...

    in their last video most of the guys said that they could never be "just friends" with guys, so yeah it`d bother me if my boyfriend was hanging out with some girl...oh no now i`m a jealous crazy girlfriend. ):

    adding to my last comment, my boyfriend knows all of my guy friends here on my campus (which are my best friends) and he`s friends with them as well, and he`s never been too bothered with how much i hang out with them, after he got to know them.

    Because he`s not that into you. If he was really in love it would bug the crap out of him. Sorry, that`s just how guys are.

    I think it`s about maturity. I used to think men and women couldn`t be friends, but as I`ve matured I`ve gained fewer male friends and more female friends. There are girls that I`ve been interested in or dated who are now friends of mine and who I`m no longer interested in romantically.

    "matured" "romantically"

    Dude, prussia, that just sounds like a recent large decrease is sex drive. All it takes is one woman secretly fawning over you, and that "maturity" is frequently tossed aside.

    I`ve been on multiple ends of the "friends of the opposite sex" coin where things turned away from friendship for better or worse. It`s a silly conceited idea to think it`ll always work out perfectly where they/you will always be friends.

    Haha, I get what you`re saying but it`s not about sex drive. I`ve had a girl who fawned all over me and it was a miserable relationship, so I`m done with that. I guess I just want to find the right girl for me. That`s not the way most guys think, but I`m cool with it.

    "That`s not the way most guys think"

    Exactly. I mean, what works for you works for you, but if the general consensus of women say "Sure, my bf can hang out with all sorts of women who are at least as hot as I am and I have no problem with that." then they`re nuts. Most men will stray given time and motivation.

    @Bunny. Does your boyfriend make considerably more money than your male friends? Are you considerably hotter than his female friends? If the answer to both questions is yes, fine. If either is no, someone should`ve at least doubted the fidelity at some point.

    pretty stupid really, just because something bothers your other half doesn`t mean you shouldn`t do it. Couples can be irrational and often know that they are being stupid.

    You either trust your partner or you don`t. If you don`t then it`s something you need to deal with as you believe your partner is not entirely trustworthy or that you are insecure with the relationship. You cannot force anyone into staying with you, you have to accept they are their own person.

    women: it`s ok for me to hangout with my male friend one to one but not ok for my boyfriend to go out with just a female friend.

    this is because women are insecure about their relationships and need to cultivate a `saftey net` guy who they can settle for if need be.

    men are just realists: i don`t hangout with girls unless i want to have sex with them, therefore this `guyfriend` wants to have sex with my girlfriend. so drat that guy, let him get his own girlfriend the friendzoned loser.

    Well, there`s a fair chance you`ll be involved with some guy who is cheating on you, sooner or later.

    But that could happen anyway and overall you`ll be better off with an abundance of trust than without enough of it. Few things kill relationships more effectively than trust issues.

    Here`s the deal ladies. When you say "but most of my friends are guys" that is not true. You have a line of guys that are willing to bone you if given the opportunity. The ones that aren`t in that line are probably gay.

    Don`t believe me? Ask them.

    Most of my friends are girls, but thats just kinda how it`s always been due to some factors of my childhood. I had to learn to be able to get along with girls and have the ability to view them as just friends because thats what i was mostly surrounded by through out my time elementary school.

    With that said, as I`ve gotten older, it has become increasingly difficult to remain just friends with many of the girls mainly due to outside expectations. When I`m dating a girl, I admittedly don`t like her to be hanging out with other guys one on one, and I try to hang out with my female friends in groups that include my current interest. I don`t easily get jealous, but at the same time, i don`t trust other guys, and I`ve had various girlfriends admit a similar distrust of my longtime female friends.

    its called having trust in your relationship.
    if you can trust yourself around the opposite sex then why wouldn`t you trust your partner?

    The problem is that women always want someone on the side "just in case". That way, they don`t cheat...officially, but they are there, waiting in the wings. It`s all about power. If a guy puts up with it, he`ll be gone because every relationship has it ups and downs and that grass is always greener.

    If you think any of those guys would rape your girlfriend, surely the right thing to do is at least warn her and explain why you think he/they is/are rapists?

    Likewise for the "various girlfriends" who, you claim, admitted that they thought your longtime female friends would rape you.

    Or (and I think this is much more likely) you and those "various girlfriends" are lying about who it is you don`t trust. If you think your girlfriend might *choose* to have sex with some guy who`s offering, it`s *her* you don`t trust. Likewise for those various girlfriends you mention and you.

    @ tttaylorrr - no, you`re right. I don`t know you, him, or your relationship.
    But I know guys. We`re juvenile, posessive, agressive, territorial, and all those other caveman things. So if the boyfriend isn`t into you enough to care, he`s probably not that into you. But why does he have to be? You`re not marrying him or anything.

    Tally the thread here and you`ll see most girls say "it`s okay" most guys say "it`s not".

    I think the guy in the video phrased it the best.

    If you put someone in the position enough times, they will eventually fall. No matter how sincere or how much they love you, people aren`t perfect, and people make mistakes.

    That being said, I don`t think it`s appropriate to hang out with the opposite sex alone when you`re in a relationship, but group settings are fine. Even if nothing happens, you`ll probably make your partner paranoid and jealous, which is mean in its own weird kind of way.
